The inside of the hopper door of my Hitzer has gotten a buildup of a crusty material that forms in lumps. When I opened the door today half of the length of the gasket pulled away from the door.
It had stuck in a blob about the size of a nickle that looked like the same material forming on the door. Some must have chipped off and fallen on the stove top as I was closing the door yesterday, and melted. Fortunately I have some Rutland gasket cement in stock. It works fine, but I used to get a clear liquid, I believe was called "water glass" that never let go, which is good until you go to change a gasket. I would buy it again if I could find it because it could be scraped off the door with enough elbow grease, and I never had to worry about having a gasket fall off. Has anyone else ever heard of or used Water Glass
Does anyone know what that crusty junk is forming on the inside of my hopper lid
